As I write this, Obama leads with 251 electoral votes to Romney's 203. And I punched the air with my fists and shouted, "YES!"
I can't get this excited about politics in my own country because too many people still voted for Stephen Harper. I wept on the last Canadian election day. I'm not American, but what I see in the election results is that enough people care about their fellow Americans and their rights and freedoms.
This gives me a just a little more hope.
Call me premature if you like, but congratulations on your second term Mr. Obama. You've earned it.
